AJ Hilton, FOX 47 News Anchor, 5:30pm & 10pm
If you don't know where you're going, then you'll never know if you've gotten there." Those are words to live by for A.J. Hilton, who first joined Fox 47 in March of 2007 as the weekend anchor/reporter.
A.J. started his professional journalism career in the twin cities, graduating from University of Minnesota with a degree in journalism and mass communication. He then landed a job at television station KSAX in Alexandria, Minnesota. It wasn't long before he moved up the ranks, eventually anchoring all the shows. After a year and half, A.J. decided it was time to take the next step. The capital city has turned out to be the perfect move.
Even though he was born in Dallas, Texas, A.J. is no stranger to the blistering cold, but admits he still has a big soft spot for both "the lone star state" and Minnesota. He loves sports-- cheering for his Dallas Cowboys and Mavericks. When he isn't working, you can catch him listening to music, traveling or spending time with friends.
